Author Info
James Rollins
James Rollins is widely acclaimed for his action-adventure tales, while James Clemens is best known for his popular fantasy novels. The two are, however, one and the same; Rollins and Clemens are both pen names of former veterinarian James Paul Czajkowski. He has told interviewers that he has a common aim, no matter the genre. "My goal when I set out to write is not to examine the human condition or explore the trials and tribulations of modern society," he asserts. "When I set out to write, I aim for pure . . . adventure, pure escape and entertainment. I follow the three M's of storytelling: murder, magic, and mayhem." Czajkowski was born in Chicago, and from an early age he was a fan of pulp novels from the 1930s and ?40s. He also loved tales about explorers like Howard Carter, who discovered the tomb of the Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamen, and anything by Jules Verne and H.G. Wells. In 1985 he earned a doctoral degree in veterinary medicine from the University of Missouri and subsequently opened a veterinary practice in Sacramento, California. An avid spelunker and scuba diver, he also relaxed by writing in his spare time. Meeting one of his idols, fantasy writer Terry Brooks, at a conference led to an introduction to Brooks's publisher, who released the first Clemens novel, WIT'CH FIRE, in 1998. The following year, his first action-adventure, SUBTERRANEAN, was published under the name Rollins. Since then, he has regularly published under both names; he has admitted that at book signings he sometimes gets confused and autographs a volume incorrectly, but that fans don't generally seem to mind.
Praise
"Rollins takes esoteric information and makes it easy to understand while serving up a first-class, breathtaking adventure that will have readers whizzing through the pages. The only thing wrong with this tale: it has to end." (top pick)

From the Publisher
Annotation Bestselling novelist James Rollins unleashes a conspiracy-ridden, roller-coaster ride with THE DEVIL COLONY. When a mass grave is discovered on Native American lands in the Rockies, many people want to claim the site for their research--and other, more nefarious purposes because amidst the bodies were these gold plates covered with mysterious and indecipherable writings. Sigma Force director Painter Crowe gets called to the scene but meanwhile a larger disaster looms. The connection between global natural disasters and a conspiracy connected to the bodies in the Rockies at first seems tenuous, but the more Painter investigates the deeper and wider is the phenomenally evil plot that he uncovers.
